(Exclusive) Joe Biden, call your agent: ABC is developing an hourlong drama revolving around the vice president and his chief of staff.
Project, to be written by Sheldon Turner (“Up in the Air”) and Shaun Cassidy (“Invasion”) isn’t about Biden, but does center on a fictional U.S. VP and his team, led by a female chief of staff.
The drama, which comes with a strong dose of comedy, focuses on the underdog nature of the veep’s team — call it the political equivalent of “Glee.” Untitled hour is less about politics and more about office dynamics, including a budding romance between the chief of staff and the veepee’s son.
Turner and Cassidy will exec produce along with Jennifer Klein; ABC Studios is behind the project.
